Starters were Joe Malone (C), George Carey (RW), Rusty Crawford (LW), Joe Hall (P) and Dave Ritchie (CP).

Subs were Jack McDonald, Jack Marks, Skuli Jonsson and Walter Mummery. That's three forwards and one defenceman (Mummery), and of them McDonald got the most ice time by far, probably playing almost as much as Crawford and Carey. Having a full spare forward line and one spare blueliner (or sometimes 2 F and 1 D) was pretty standard at this time, and for a number of years afterward. NHA teams averaged closer to 9 men per game rather than 8 that season.

Ritchie started a couple of games at wing, and Crawford a couple of games at CP.
